Bauer Technologies, a subsidiary of the BAUER Group, has been awarded a contract to support the development of Gateshead’s Quayside Area and assist in the construction of the new arena, hotels and leisure facilities, over the next eight months.
Bauer is working with BAM Construction, on behalf of the developer, Ask:PATRIZIA, and work is already under way on the arena complex, which is set to transform Gateshead Quayside. The plans also include a conference centre and 330-bed hotel, alongside the 12,500-seat arena, which will replace the Utilita Arena in Newcastle.
Specifically, Bauer Technologies will consolidate up to five proven worked coal seams by Cement/PFA grout. Bauer’s scope of works will be undertaken utilising four specialist drilling rigs and will include drilling and low-pressure grout injection of approx. 3200 vertical and inclined holes, to depths of up to 40 metres, with a total drilled length of over 100,000m.
Speaking about the project, Michael Jones, Managing Director of Bauer Technologies said: “We’re delighted to be working with BAM Construction on this project, which is a vital site for Gateshead and the wider region. Our project team is already on site, and we are on track to complete our scope of works by September 2022”.
